Does anyone know if JB Weld is a good thing to use to kit-bash weapons together?  I'm looking for a good bonding agent to build my weapons with over break.

Not planning on it.  :P  Like I said, I'm going to use it to kit-bash a few parts together, but I wasn't sure if I could sand parts of it down, etc.

Definately! I haven't had trouble with it, I would suggest bondo instead though... easier to sand ;)

From what I've seen on here, most people recommend bondo as a final step, as bondo will easily crack, and is not as tough if you drop something.

I thought that you were using it as the final step (Sorry! :rolleyes:) but yes, glue, then bondo for a good look 8)

No worries!  Sorry for being unclear.  :P  Awesome.  I think I'm going to begin work on my weapons in the next few days.  :)

Another bump, but this comes with a question:  My prototype helmet is basically, for all intents and purposes, ready to be fiberglassed.  I've seen in some other threads that people used resin first and then done fiberglass, while others haven't mentioned it, but due to budget restraints, I wanted to know if this is at all necessary.  Since this will just be a prototype, it'll more than likely just end up as a nice display piece.

A second question:  If I don't have a dremel tool, what are some reliable ways of cutting hard plastics (i.e. airsoft gun parts and the like.)?

Novoc Im new so feel free to take this as friendly advice which I assure is whats its meant as.

As far as a dremel goes...looking back I have tried everything from hand saws to power tools and there really is no substitute, the tools are what make alot of this possible, after screwing up on about $100.00 worth of materials I bought my dremel and never looked back, and then I did fine.

But if I had just bought that dremel I could have saved that $100.00 and had it 2 months sooner. So realisticly the dremel is used on about 75% of your stuff as far as mandos go, Weapons, armor , bucket, leather, even some soft pieces. I would say find room in your budget even if it takes you a few months to get there, you wont regret it, and trying to substitute something for it is just gonna cost you more in the long run.

Okay.  I'm still formulating ideas, etc, and I finally found a picture of how I want my cape to look.  Obviously it won't be so pristine, and have some nice weathering to it, but this is the general idea.  Does anyone know where I can find a template for something like this, or whether anyone could make one for me, if I can't do it myself?

It's basically a rectangular sheet of fabric, and starting at either top corner you fold up the material about a quarter to a third of the way in on either side and affix that to you shoulders.

I don't know if I follow you correctly.  Could you find me a diagram or something?

Basically, just take a blanket/sheet of fabric/whatever and grab two corners and pin them to your shoulders.
